Could not get past the taste.

I'm sorry, but I could not get past the taste to determine if they would work:(

- Thrive User

Herbal drops

It takes some getting used to the flavor, but the fact that these really work to soothe your throat makes it worth the initial distaste.

I still can't get my kids to use these, but they work wonders for me and my husband. We no longer fear sore throats because we know we'll have quick relief at hand.

- Tera Herm

It's cold season

It's cold season out there and it definitely pays to have a package of these on hand. They aren't all full of sugar like Halls and the other cough and throat drop brands.

This is the only throat drop I bring in my house. I love the natural herbal flavor to them and that they don't hurt my teeth.

- Joyce Roirre

Great for throat

I love Ricola's natural herb drops. I use them not just when I have a cough or feel a sore throat coming on, but also when I want my mouth and throat moistened because of dry or cold air. They work well to moisten my mouth and leave a great scent, so they're almost like a breath freshener as well. They are always in my bag during the winter and spring season, and because they don't have any sugar, I don't feel like I need to visit the dentist after I suck on one of these drops.

Ricola adds a natural drop

I've used Ricola before, loved those commercials they put on a few years back. But I'd never tried these natural drops that didn't have any chemicals. I'm pleasantly surprised by the flavor and effectiveness of these drops. I don't taste a lot of difference in terms of flavor, and they work as well as the standard drops. I usually take these at the first hint of a cough or cold, even if it's just a scratch in my throat, and within a few hours, I can tell a big difference in how I'm feeling.

- Ross Mathis

Best Cough Drops

Better than a lot of the chemically-laden throat drops, I prefer to use these over the competitor brands. It has a delicious natural taste to it. It almost tastes like honey. It does the job pretty well. It doesn't fix my sniffles, but it certainly makes it much less uncomfortable. These are pleasant to suck on, too, and they don't leave your mouth feeling really dry or metallic like other cough drops do. I like that the bag itself has less of a "crinkly" sound to it too. It makes it easier to carry around with everyone knowing I'm sick.
